Living in southern Germany, this is one recipe that I had to get before we got back to the States. This style of potato salad is served at every restaurant and is in all the grocery stores. I got this recipe from one of my German friends, so this is an authentic German potato salad and tastes excellent!

Tips

Cook's Note:

This recipe is excellent warm or cold. It is usually eaten with German sausage, and is great for any family gathering. Typically in southern Germany, this potato salad is served in a salad. That's right, in a salad! It was always my favorite surprise at the end of my salad. I could not wait to get to the potato salad at the bottom. Hopefully you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
